The Heaven and Hell 2007 Tour was a global concert tour by Heaven & Hell in support of Black Sabbath's The Dio Years compilation CD.[1][2]

History[edit]

The idea for a 2007 Heaven & Hell concert tour was brought about when Rhino records informed Tony Iommi's management that they would like to include previously unreleased material for the Dio Years compilation.[3] After it emerged that no suitable material was available, Iommi contacted Dio and suggested they record some new songs together.[3] After the successful recording sessions, the band decided to tour.[3]

The following is the Set list from Heaven & Hell's concert at Air Canada Centre in Toronto on 22 March 2007.[4]

Opening acts[edit]

Heaven & Hell had various support acts. In the US Queensrÿche and Alice Cooper[5] after Rob Zombie - who had been confirmed as a US opener - was replaced by Cooper.,[6] though Alice Cooper was not actually an opening act, his Psycho-Drama tour dates were juxtaposed with theirs. Lamb Of God and Iced Earth were the supports at UK concerts.[7] Canadian dates were supported by Megadeth and Down. During the Australian tour, the band Down (band) led by ex Pantera lead singer Phil Anselmo were the supporting act.
